    [00:59] <Jane-Bremer> the street light had gone out
    [00:59] <HarrySerious> ah okay
    [00:59] * HarrySerious scribbles in his notebook
    [00:59] <Jane-Bremer> well

    [010] <HarrySerious> ahh
    [010] <Jane-Bremer> it was hunched over
    [010] <HarrySerious> so why do you think it wasnt a man ?
    [010] * Looking up Jane-Bremer user info...
    [010] <Jane-Bremer> just... the way it moved
    [010] <Jane-Bremer> it didn&#39;t seem to be from this world
    [010] <HarrySerious> okay, how did it move, can you be more specific ?
    [011] <Jane-Bremer> fast..
    [011] <Jane-Bremer> I&#39;ve never seen anything move that fast
    [011] <HarrySerious> right, i see
    [011] <HarrySerious> where did it go, moving so fast ?
    [011] <Jane-Bremer> it ran at me
    [011] <HarrySerious> right &#33;
    [012] * HarrySerious scribbles in his notebook again
    [012] <Jane-Bremer> it...it atacked me
    [012] <Jane-Bremer> but i do know some tai kwan do
    [012] <HarrySerious> right ...
    [013] <Jane-Bremer> you can see the wound on my leg
    [013] * HarrySerious looks at leg
    [013] <Jane-Bremer> after i kick it
    [013] <Jane-Bremer> it shriked and ran away
    [013] <HarrySerious> i see
    [013] <HarrySerious> how did the wound occur ?
    [014] <HarrySerious> did he have a knife or a bottle ?
    [014] <Jane-Bremer> it had...
    [014] <Jane-Bremer> it had claws
    [014] * HarrySerious crosses out &#39;he&#39; and writes &#39;it&#39; in his notebook
    [014] <HarrySerious> so, he or it had long fingernails ?
    [015] <Jane-Bremer> no
    [015] <Jane-Bremer> claws
    [015] <Jane-Bremer> like an animal
    [015] <HarrySerious> err...right
    [015] <HarrySerious> are you sure it was not a rubber Halloween glove ?
    [016] <HarrySerious> with nails or knife blades in the finger tips ?
    [016] <Jane-Bremer> what?
    [016] * Burian rolls down the street a large military truck belching thick diesel smoke, and parks a few hosues down from the detectives car
    [016] <HarrySerious> we get some weird teenagers in this city
    [016] <Jane-Bremer> no
    [016] <Jane-Bremer> of course not
    [016] <Jane-Bremer> and it had this horriable stench
    [016] <HarrySerious> okay madam, I&#39;ve made a note of that
    [017] <HarrySerious> right
    [017] <HarrySerious> did you notice if anyone else saw this creature or whatever ?
    [017] * Burian exits the vehicle, glances at a few houses as if looking for something, then casts his gaze on Jane&#39;s house
    [017] <Jane-Bremer> there was this other person who lives in my building
    [017] <Burian> EXCUSE ME
    [018] <HarrySerious> ah right
    [018] <Jane-Bremer> but he&#39;s not in right now
    [018] * Burian walks up to the two conversing
    [018] <HarrySerious> I see

    [018] <Jane-Bremer> yes
    [018] <Jane-Bremer> yes it is
    [018] <Burian> and you would be Jane Bremer?
    [018] <Jane-Bremer> I am

    [01:11] <Burian> and was told he was linked to the attack on poor miss...
    [01:11] <Jane-Bremer> Bremer

    [01:11] <Burian> i"m sorry you are miss correct?
    [01:11] <Jane-Bremer> yes
    [01:11] <Burian> anyway
    [01:11] <Burian> I was informed
    [01:11] * Looking up Burian user info...
    [01:11] <Burian> he was linked to this attack in some fashion
    [01:12] <Det_Serious> right, I have to take an interest in this, Sir
    [01:12] <Burian> I&#39;m sorry I can&#39;t reveal to you my sources
    [01:12] <Burian> but I your investigation and mine seem to be headed in the same direction
    [01:13] <Det_Serious> excuse me, but I think you might have to
    [01:13] <Det_Serious> exactly
    [01:13] <Det_Serious> so I have to ask you here and now ...
    [01:13] <Det_Serious> what is your employers interest in this assault ?
    [01:14] <Burian> Ha
    [01:14] <Det_Serious> whats his name to start with ?
    [01:14] <Burian> I don&#39;t even know his name
    [01:14] * Det_Serious scribbles in his notebook
    [01:14] <Burian> i recieved a letter in teh mail
    [01:14] <Burian> no return address
    [01:14] <Burian> and the letter
    [01:14] <Jane-Bremer> Ecsuse me
    [01:14] <Burian> gave me a quarry to peruse
    [01:14] <Jane-Bremer> may i get a drink
    [01:15] <Det_Serious> by all means, miss
    [01:15] * Jane-Bremer leaves to get a drink
    [01:15] <Burian> oh of course
    [01:15] <Burian> anyway detective
    [01:15] <Burian> the letter promised a sizeable sum of money if i found the individual in question
    [01:15] <Det_Serious> I see
    [01:15] <Burian> at first
    [01:15] <Burian> i thought it was a load of horse *****
    [01:16] <Burian> but
    [01:16] <Det_Serious> understandable
    [01:16] <Burian> it appears he advanced 25% of the finders fee
    [01:16] <Burian> to my bank account
    [01:16] <Det_Serious> I see
    [01:16] * Det_Serious scribbles in his notebook
    [01:16] * Jane-Bremer returns coke in hand
    [01:16] <Burian> i can&#39;t tell you anything about my employer or about my bounty
    [01:17] <Burian> as I don&#39;t know anything further
    [01:17] <Burian> but if hes good for the cash
    [01:17] <Burian> which hes proven
    [01:17] <Burian> its an offer I can’t refuse
    [01:17] <Det_Serious> you can tell me the name of the individual that you have been tasked to find
    [01:17] <Burian> not a name
    [01:18] <Burian> in fact
    [01:18] <Burian> the message was much of a riddle in itself
    [01:18] <Det_Serious> please tell it to me
    [01:18] <Burian> it listed this address
    [01:18] <Burian> and a name
    [01:18] <Burian> Jane Bremer
    [01:18] <Burian> and then below
    [01:18] <Burian> was a short script
    [01:19] <Burian> Seek the beast, and you shall find
    [01:19] * Det_Serious scribbles in his notebook
    [01:19] <Burian> your actions are returned in kind.
    [01:19] <Burian> then a sort of number
    [01:19] <Burian> thats how i know the money came from them
    [01:20] <Det_Serious> what was the number ?
    [01:20] <Burian> it matches the account my payment was transferred from
    [01:20] <Det_Serious> right
    [01:20] <Burian> some offshore swiss account
    [01:20] <Burian> unimportant

    [01:49] <Burian> yes
    [01:49] <Burian> you say he was fast
    [01:49] <Det_Serious> and maybe the direction that the assailant departed
    [01:49] <Jane-Bremer> it moved like a blur
    [01:50] <Jane-Bremer> and i was to disoriented to tell wich way it went
    [01:50] <Det_Serious> would you acompany me back to the scene and we can go through the sequence of events?
    [01:50] <Burian> hmmmm

    [01:50] <Burian> if it was in human
    [01:50] <Det_Serious> being back there, when it is perfectly safe in daylight, might help you get over any distress
    [01:50] <Burian> maybe it left behind something that can help us
    [01:51] <Jane-Bremer> alright
    [01:51] <Det_Serious> Mr Shevchenko, this is a matter for the LAPD Detectives Division

    [02:23] * Det_Serious scribbles in his notebook
    [02:23] * Burian chuckles
    [02:24] <Prof-Truth> This man was under roman control the time he wrote this book so it is in Latin

    [02:26] <Prof-Truth> It also killed common folk.. but the romans did not notice that
    [02:26] <Prof-Truth> Anyway...
    [02:26] <Burian> a military force?
    [02:26] <Prof-Truth> Not really
    [02:26] <Burian> then what was it?
    [02:26] <Prof-Truth> When he says force... he most likely means an entity... something of flesh and bloof
    [02:27] <Burian> something like waht our slimey friend ran into
    [02:27] <Prof-Truth> He describes the bodies as looking a great deal like this
    [02:27] <Det_Serious> sounds an extremly tenuous link to me
    [02:27] * Prof-Truth looks around for Jane
    [02:27] <Burian> do they have any descriptions of the entity ?
    [02:28] * Jane-Bremer was having horiable lag

    [02:47] <SarahWalters> thank you professor
    [02:47] <Prof-Truth> She needs a warrant free car though
    [02:47] <Det_Serious> and I dare say I will be in touch
    [02:48] <Prof-Truth> I have a lecture to go to though, so I really must leave
    [02:48] <Det_Serious> please dont leave the state until then
    [02:48] <Burian> take care of your self prof
    [02:48] * Det_Serious notes the details in his notebook
    [02:48] <SarahWalters> your not sure if you believe me or not are you? you want to believe but your mind will not allow it
    [02:49] * Prof-Truth waits for detective serious to finish and then heads down the ladder
    [02:49] <Det_Serious> lets just say Im trying to keep an open mind here
    [02:49] * Prof-Truth disappears around the bend in the road off to teach a class
    [02:49] <Prof-Truth> ooc been a lot of fun guys I will try to make the next one
    [02:49] <Det_Serious> but notions of clawed mutants from 2000 years ago is just a little bit far fetched for me
    [02:50] <SarahWalters> well my point on corruption is that people who think these books may be true are branded insane
    [02:51] <Det_Serious> yeah, thats a point of view
    [02:51] <SarahWalters> yet we see here one of those books being accurate
    [02:51] <Det_Serious> that may just be coincidence though, Ma&#39;am
    [02:52] <Burian> i doubt that highly
    [02:52] <Jane-Bremer> as do I

    ACT 9 Sarah’s Theory
    [02:52] <SarahWalters> Miss Bremer you said you worked at a library
    [02:52] * Det_Serious gives Burian and Jane-Bremer a cool look
    [02:52] <Jane-Bremer> i do
    [02:52] <SarahWalters> could you take me there i have a theory i would like to test
    [02:53] <Jane-Bremer> of course
    [02:53] <Det_Serious> may I ask what that theory would be ?
    [02:53] <SarahWalters> gentlemen?
    [02:53] <SarahWalters> all in good time Detective
    [02:54] <Det_Serious> I can&#39;t leave the murder scene until my people get here
    [02:54] <Burian> well im in
    [02:54] <Det_Serious> so I will thank you to stay until they get here
    [02:54] <Burian> have fun with your body Det
    [02:54] <Det_Serious> oh here they are
    [02:54] <Det_Serious> thats convenient
    [02:54] <Burian> quite
    [02:55] * Det_Serious watches the SOCO unit pull up and the various people come onto the roof
    [02:55] * SarahWalters goes to her car, detective do you need a lift?
    [02:56] * Det_Serious compares notes with his colleuges and decides to acompany the others to the library
    [02:56] <Det_Serious> no thanks Ms Walters, and Im sure Ms Bremer will come with me
    [02:57] <Jane-Bremer> Actualy
    [02:57] <Det_Serious> I&#39;ll call off the APB on your car first though
    [02:57] <Jane-Bremer> i will go with Ms.Walters
    [02:57] <Det_Serious> okay
    [02:57] * Burian mocks the detective "I&#39;m sure she&#39;ll come with me"
    [02:57] * Det_Serious gives Burian a cool look
    [02:57] <SarahWalters> thanks for removing the APB
    [02:57] <Det_Serious> not at all
    [02:58] * SarahWalters opens the door for Jane
    [02:58] <Det_Serious> see you at the library then
    [02:58] * Jane-Bremer gets in the car
    [02:58] <Burian> as will I
    [02:58] * Burian slides down the ladder
    [02:58] * Burian heads to his car and drives off
    [02:59] * SarahWalters reaches the library
    [02:59] * Det_Serious relishes the sound of his mustang as he drives to the library
    [030] * Det_Serious parks up and enters the library
    [030] * Burian daydreams about crushing the detectives mustang with his humvee
    [030] * Burian pull into the parking lot
    [030] * Det_Serious makes a mental note to get Burians humvee tested for emissions
    [031] <SarahWalters> so anyway i assume this library has an occult section
    [031] <Jane-Bremer> yes
    [031] <Jane-Bremer> its rather new actual
    [031] <Burian> lead the way
    [031] <Jane-Bremer> just got the books in last month
    [031] <Det_Serious> lead the way please miss Brewer
    [032] * Jane-Bremer leads the groups to the darkest corner of the library
    [032] <SarahWalters> also note how the occult section is always dark
    [032] <Burian> spookeh
    [032] <Jane-Bremer> of course
    [032] <Det_Serious> from a health and safety viewpoint, you ought to get some better lights in here, Ma&#39;am
    [032] <SarahWalters> i swear the next book i write is going to be glow in the dark for that very reason
    [033] <Det_Serious> you write books, Ms Walters ?
    [033] <Jane-Bremer> Who are you
    [033] <Jane-Bremer> the saftey inspecter?
    [033] <SarahWalters> only two thus far
    [034] <Det_Serious> on what subjects, may i ask ?
    [034] <SarahWalters> the paranormal of course
    [034] * Det_Serious murmers &#39;of course&#39;
    [035] <Burian> somehow I&#39;m not surprised
    [035] <Det_Serious> so why are we here ?
    [036] * Jane-Bremer starts searching for sever books that might be of help
    [036] <Jane-Bremer> *several
    [036] * Jane-Bremer finds the Books writen in some form of latin
    [037] <SarahWalters> I read Latin
    [037] <Jane-Bremer> alright
    [037] * Jane-Bremer hands Ms.Walters the books

    ACT 10 Of Spell Books, Hooded Men and Mr Nemy
    [037] * SarahWalters skims the book
    [037] <SarahWalters> its a spell book, not just any spell book at that its based on the Necronomicon
    [038] <Jane-Bremer> yes
    [038] <Jane-Bremer> i remember that book
    [038] <Jane-Bremer> its the most expensive one in the whole library
    [038] <SarahWalters> do you have any idea how dangerous that book is?
    [038] * Det_Serious hasn&#39;t a clue about what they are talking about
    [038] <Jane-Bremer> no
    [039] <Jane-Bremer> i just thought it would be interest because of the price
    [039] <Jane-Bremer> but i didn&#39;t notice it was in latin
    [039] <SarahWalters> it has the power to summon things that you really do not really want to know about
    [039] <SarahWalters> *remove second really
    [03:10] <SarahWalters> may i see the Necronomicon itself?
    [03:10] <Jane-Bremer> sure
    [03:10] <Jane-Bremer> hold on a sec
    [03:11] * Jane-Bremer looks for the Necronomicon
    [03:11] * Jane-Bremer finds it and hands Sarah the book
    [03:11] <SarahWalters> who else knows this is here?
    [03:12] <Jane-Bremer> just me and the website www.occultbooks4u.com
    [03:12] <SarahWalters> oh *****
    [03:13] <SarahWalters> now one last thing, tell me you did not read any of this
    [03:13] <Jane-Bremer> no
    [03:13] <Jane-Bremer> i can&#39;t read latin
    [03:13] <SarahWalters> thank god
    [03:13] <SarahWalters> unless...
    [03:14] <SarahWalters> who else has had access to this book?
    [03:14] <Jane-Bremer> any one who could come into the library
    [03:14] <Jane-Bremer> though i think only one or two people have gone into this section
    [03:15] <Jane-Bremer> Mr.Nemy and this person ive never seen here before
    [03:16] <SarahWalters> Mr Nemy?
    [03:16] <Jane-Bremer> yes
    [03:16] <Jane-Bremer> he is a regular here
    [03:16] <Jane-Bremer> checks out lots of books
    [03:16] <SarahWalters> what do you know of him?
    [03:17] <Jane-Bremer> he reads lots of history books
    [03:17] <Jane-Bremer> and has one book from this section overdue
    [03:17] <SarahWalters> you certainly know your job
    [03:18] * Det_Serious is unsure if this has anything to do with his murder investigation, but makes notes anyway
    [03:18] <Jane-Bremer> i belive he is a police officer
    [03:19] * Det_Serious gives Jane-Bremer a cool look
    [03:19] <SarahWalters> ok this is far too unlikely to be a coincidence
    [03:20] <Jane-Bremer> one of the higher ups
    [03:20] <Det_Serious> do you have his name to hand ?
    [03:20] <Det_Serious> ahh, you are refferring to Mr Nemy ?
    [03:20] <Jane-Bremer> yes
    [03:20] <Det_Serious> hmm
    [03:20] <SarahWalters> Jane hide this book please, it is far too dangerous
    [03:21] <Det_Serious> dangerous in what way ?
    [03:21] * Burian wakes up
    [03:21] * Jane-Bremer goes into the back book hiding room
    [03:21] * Jane-Bremer puts the book in a safe with all the other book of tremendous power
    [03:21] <SarahWalters> the things it can call
    [03:22] * Det_Serious is sceptical, but far too professional a detective to scoff openly
    [03:23] <Det_Serious> Ms Walters you said you had a theory you wanted to test here
    [03:23] <Det_Serious> what was that theory ?
    [03:24] <SarahWalters> one of the most powerful spell books in the world and a string of occult murders
    [03:24] <SarahWalters> i think we have a connection
    [03:25] <Det_Serious> I grant you the murders IF there is a string MAY have an occult basis
    [03:25] <Det_Serious> I&#39;m not sure about some gooky old book though
    [03:26] <SarahWalters> Jane you saw the creature, was it anything of this world?
    [03:26] <Jane-Bremer> no
    [03:26] <Jane-Bremer> no it wasn’t
    [03:26] <Det_Serious> hmm
    [03:27] <Det_Serious> I&#39;m gonna have to report in to my office
    [03:27] <Det_Serious> write up my notes
    [03:27] <Det_Serious> and I&#39;ll be finding out if there are any other murders with similar mucus
    [03:28] <SarahWalters> you do that
    [03:28] <Det_Serious> can I ask, Ms Walters, who your contact in Forensic is ?
    [03:28] <SarahWalters> he wishes to remain unknown
    [03:28] <Det_Serious> hmm
    [03:29] <Det_Serious> well, he shouldnt be too hard to find
    [03:29] <SarahWalters> one final question on the Necronomicon is- where did it come from?
    [03:29] <Jane-Bremer> internet
    [03:29] <Det_Serious> Ebay ?
    [03:30] <Jane-Bremer> www.occultbooks4u.com
    [03:30] * Looking up Jane-Bremer user info...
    [03:30] <SarahWalters> and where are they based?
    [03:31] <Jane-Bremer> i don&#39;t know
    [03:31] <SarahWalters> the plot thickens
    [03:32] <Det_Serious> so it does
    [03:32] <Det_Serious> I&#39;ll just ask you for all your contact details
    [03:32] <SarahWalters> why would a company sell a book which has only 10 or so copies in existence to a public library?
    [03:32] <Det_Serious> and then I&#39;ll depart for my office
    [03:33] * Det_Serious collects the contact details
    [03:33] * Det_Serious has a Columbo moment
    [03:34] <Det_Serious> theres just one...err.. thing you mentioned Miss Bremer
    [03:34] * Burian laughs at eh strange detective
    [03:34] <Jane-Bremer> Yes?
    [03:34] <Det_Serious> you said there was a guy besides Mr Nemy looking at that old book
    [03:35] <Det_Serious> can you describe him ?
    [03:35] <Jane-Bremer> he wasn&#39;t looking at the book
    [03:35] <Det_Serious> and when was this ?
    [03:35] <Jane-Bremer> just in this section
    [03:35] <Det_Serious> right
    [03:35] <Jane-Bremer> but if i remember
    [03:36] <Jane-Bremer> He was wearing a hooded swear shirt
    [03:36] <Jane-Bremer> wich hid his face
    [03:36] <Det_Serious> I see
    [03:36] <Jane-Bremer> but hes was about 5&#39;3
    [03:36] * SarahWalters looks up suddenly
    [03:36] <Det_Serious> build ?
    [03:36] <SarahWalters> any distinguishing marks?
    [03:36] <Det_Serious> big, slightly built ?
    [03:37] <Jane-Bremer> i think he had a tattoo on his right hand
    [03:37] <Jane-Bremer> he was rather wirery
    [03:37] <Det_Serious> what did it depict ?
    [03:37] <Jane-Bremer> i star of some sort
    [03:37] <Jane-Bremer> with eight points
    [03:38] <SarahWalters> did the tatoo look like anything you had seen before?
    [03:38] * Det_Serious makes a note in his notebook
    [03:38] <Jane-Bremer> no
    [03:38] <SarahWalters> interesting, very interesting
    [03:38] <Det_Serious> why do you say that Miss Walters ?
    [03:39] <SarahWalters> hand tattoos are usually cult symbols
    [03:39] <Det_Serious> like gangs ?
    [03:39] <Det_Serious> crips ?
    [03:40] <SarahWalters> sort of
    [03:40] <SarahWalters> which may explain why Jane was attacked
    [03:41] * Det_Serious mutters something about &#39;enough crazy gangs in this mans city&#39; under his breath
    [03:41] <Det_Serious> how so, Ma&#39;am ?
    [03:41] <SarahWalters> did anyone else see this mystery man?
    [03:41] <Jane-Bremer> no
    [03:41] <Jane-Bremer> it was near closing time
    [03:41] <Jane-Bremer> so nobody was there
    [03:42] <Det_Serious> when was this, do you remember ?
    [03:42] <Det_Serious> what date ?
    [03:42] <Jane-Bremer> last week
    [03:42] <SarahWalters> i fear you may still be in danger
    [03:43] <Det_Serious> why do you say that ?
    [03:44] <SarahWalters> well its a precaution more than anything else
    [03:44] <Det_Serious> right
    [03:45] <Det_Serious> have you any reason to think this was anything other than a random attack
    [03:45] <Det_Serious> ?
    [03:46] <SarahWalters> the spell books, the possible cultist and the fact she is the only person who knew they were both here
    [03:46] <SarahWalters> people knew of the book
    [03:46] <Det_Serious> hmmm
    [03:46] <SarahWalters> but not of the mystery man
    [03:47] <Det_Serious> okay, thats interesting

    ACT 10 The Parting of the Ways
    [03:47] <Det_Serious> anyway, Ive gotta go
    [03:47] <Det_Serious> Im overdue at my office
    [03:47] <SarahWalters> farewell detective
    [03:47] <SarahWalters> i assume we shall meet again
    [03:47] <Burian> yes
    [03:47] <Burian> farewell
    [03:47] <Det_Serious> after all, I am in a murder investigation now
    [03:48] <SarahWalters> hopefully before someone else dies
    [03:48] <Det_Serious> oh yes, i have all your details
    [03:48] <SarahWalters> thank you
    [03:48] <Det_Serious> well, thank you all
    [03:48] * Det_Serious is a polite hard-boiled detective
    [03:48] <Det_Serious> I&#39;ll be in touch
    [03:48] <Burian> yeah yeah
    [03:49] <Det_Serious> don&#39;t leave the state
    [03:49] <Burian> i will
    [03:49] <Burian> won&#39;t
    [03:49] <Burian> ^_^
    [03:49] <SarahWalters> i would not consider it
    [03:49] * Burian chuckles
    [03:49] * Det_Serious shoots Burian a cool look
    [03:49] * Burian points at Det and winks
    [03:49] * Det_Serious leaves for his office
    [03:49] <Burian> I best hit the road as well
    [03:50] <Burian> if you find some more information track the beast in or some way
    [03:50] <Burian> I may be able to provide more assistance than I have thus far
    [03:50] * Det_Serious pauses in the car park to look at the Humvees exhaust pipe
    [03:50] <SarahWalters> Jane you are going to be safer if you avoid your apartment tonight
    [03:50] * Det_Serious chuckles as he walks towards his own car
    [03:51] * Burian saunters out to his humvee
    [03:51] <Jane-Bremer> Where should i stay?
    [03:51] <Burian> and stand against the back block the tailpipe
    [03:51] * Burian lights up a cigarette
    [03:51] <SarahWalters> my apartment is relatively out of the way
    [03:52] * Burian drives off
    [03:53] <Jane-Bremer> Alright then

    So is Jane Bremer still in danger? If so will the protection of this unlikely group of heroes be enough?

    Many more questions await their answers...

    [021] <Det_Serious> and I have some things I have to ask you
    [021] <Det_Serious> SarahWalters: why do you say that ?
    [022] <SarahWalters> note how it came after Jane here&#33; someone was controlling it
    [022] <Det_Serious> it certainly looks like that
    [022] <Det_Serious> I take it that was the thing you saw in the ally way 3 nights ago ?
    [022] <Jane-Bremer> The same
    [022] <Det_Serious> right
    [023] <Burian> somehow im not surprised

    ACT 14 New Light on the Creature

    [025] <Det_Serious> but they have never seen anything quite like it before
    [026] <SarahWalters> i bet it goes missing before the end of the week
    [026] <Det_Serious> it has elements of human, fish, reptile and worm in its physical makeup
    [026] <Det_Serious> they are having to rewrite the manuals about it
    [027] <Det_Serious> and yes, there have been five previous deaths now
    [027] <Burian> oh
    [027] <Burian> suddenly?
    [028] <SarahWalters> including our friend on the rooftop i take it?
    [028] <Det_Serious> where the mucus and mutilations seem to point to this creature
    [028] <Burian> did the deparment just "forget" about them?
    [028] <Det_Serious> yeah
    [028] <Det_Serious> no
    [028] <Det_Serious> they just dont want to cause a panic
    [028] <Det_Serious> thats understandable isnt it ?
    [028] <SarahWalters> i think things like that are something to panic about
    [029] <SarahWalters> i want to panic at the LAPD which pretends they do not exist
    [029] <Det_Serious> you are British aren&#39;t you Ma&#39;am ?
    [029] <SarahWalters> yes i am
    [029] <Det_Serious> I thought I recognised that hokey accent

    [02:11] <Burian> panic
    [02:11] <Burian> mayhem
    [02:11] <Burian> murder
    [02:11] <Det_Serious> I guarentee you there would be 500 accidental gun deaths before the week was out
    [02:11] <Jane-Bremer> But they would be prepared
    [02:12] <SarahWalters> you saw how little damage a gun did to it
    [02:12] <Det_Serious> anyway, thats central policy, and we WONT be doing anything to change it
    [02:12] <Det_Serious> something else has come up
    [02:12] <SarahWalters> fine more meaningless deaths
    [02:12] <Det_Serious> just stick to decaffinated for a while is my advice, Ma&#39;am

    [02:14] <Det_Serious> we need you to go back to the library and ascertain what is missing

    [02:15] <Det_Serious> as soon as possible if you dont mind
    [02:15] <Jane-Bremer> all right
    [02:15] <Jane-Bremer> ill go with you

    [02:16] <SarahWalters> actually i am going to the library myself

    [02:19] * Jane-Bremer reminds the detective that the safe was opened and that would be the best place to start

    [02:23] <Burian> is it just me or has that Japanese guy been watching us since we got here

    [02:31] * Jin smiles at Sarah
    [02:31] * Jin looks at the detective
    [02:31] <SarahWalters> Burian you can not just attack people for being odd

    [02:36] <Det_Serious> okay. lets get our act together, ladies and Mr Schevnko
    [02:36] <Jane-Bremer> Did any one else notice some thing sespicous about that man?
    [02:36] <SarahWalters> something odd certainly
    [02:37] <Det_Serious> what did you notice ?
    [02:37] <Jane-Bremer> Well first of all
    [02:37] <Jane-Bremer> He was in a closed library with no one else inside
    [02:37] <Det_Serious> yeah ... okay ...
    [02:37] <Burian> well
    [02:37] <Burian> he said he got here before the tape was up
    [02:38] <Burian> maybe he wasn&#39;t lying
    [02:38] <Burian> but that would mean he would have been here before they opened
    [02:38] <Det_Serious> could be ...
    [02:38] <Jane-Bremer> Det_Serious, when exactly did the security gaurd report to the police?
    [02:39] <Det_Serious> we have it logged at 6:15 am
    [02:39] <Burian> and the police have been here since?
    [02:39] <Det_Serious> but we didnt dispatch a car until 80am
    [02:40] <Det_Serious> it seemed a low-key theft
    [02:40] <Burian> Understandably
    [02:40] <Jane-Bremer> What&#33;
    [02:40] <Det_Serious> it seemed a low-key theft
    [02:40] <Jane-Bremer> public property was just stolen
    [02:41] <Jane-Bremer> do you know how hard it is to run a puplic library these days?
    [02:41] <Det_Serious> yeah, some dusty old book
    [02:41] <SarahWalters> except that this Library has more spellbooks than any i have ever seen
    [02:42] <Burian> I wonder where they all came from?
    [02:42] <Det_Serious> yeah, well maybe David Copperfield should apply to be a librarian here then
    [02:42] <SarahWalters> Jane did they come from that website too?
    [02:42] <Jane-Bremer> www.occultbooks4u.com
    [02:42] <SarahWalters> ahhh the plot thickens
    [02:43] * Det_Serious writes &#39;the plot thickens&#39; in his notebook
    [02:43] * Jane-Bremer was wondering where the decective&#39;s notebook went
    [02:44] <SarahWalters> Detective did you get someone to check out that website?
    [02:44] * Burian wonders what the detective is writing now
    [02:45] <Det_Serious> I did get one of my guys to check it out
    [02:45] <SarahWalters> and?
    [02:46] <Det_Serious> strangely enough, it was run by a local company with an office 3 blocks from the library
    [02:46] <Det_Serious> and the company no longer exists
    [02:46] <SarahWalters> interesting
    [02:46] <Det_Serious> unusual concidence, dont you think ?

    [02:54] <SarahWalters> thank you
    [02:54] <Det_Serious> I&#39;ll run Jin Tatsenuko through the files, but for all we know its a phoney name
    [02:54] <Burian> I don&#39;t know

    [02:55] * Jin watches the odd group from a distance, concealed, as they gradually leave the Library
    [02:55] * Burian jumps in the truck
    [02:56] * SarahWalters is certain someone is watching her as she struggles to get down the steps with her walking stick
    [02:56] * Burian notes a flash in a tree nearby
    [02:57] * Burian mutters to himself " you are to paranoid"
    [02:58] * Burian drives off

    [027] <Shi_Hakousha> that&#39;s good
    [027] <Det_Serious> why are you so interested ?
    [028] <Shi_Hakousha> I heard what what happen at the station. Couldn&#39;t believe a police officer did that..
    [028] <Shi_Hakousha> I am just showingh concern
    [028] <Det_Serious> yeah, well, he disappeared without a trace afterwards
    [028] <Shi_Hakousha> I know alot fo the police in this city. Got a rep from them all...
    [028] <Det_Serious> and I dont think he was a policeman
    [028] <Shi_Hakousha> I see
    [029] <Shi_Hakousha> I was actually curious
    [029] <Shi_Hakousha> what did he look like when he died?
    [02:10] <Shi_Hakousha> I am doing this case from someone that has to do about the occult book being stolen.
    [02:10] * Det_Serious is not going to admit what happened to the body
    [02:10] <Shi_Hakousha> Some sarg told me about the whole thing.

    [02:10] <Shi_Hakousha> ok
    [02:10] <Det_Serious> when he winged me, i lost track of him
    [02:11] <Shi_Hakousha> I see
    [02:11] <Det_Serious> he must have disappeared into the other offices
    [02:11] <Shi_Hakousha> don&#39;t be suspicous about me. I am also a Investigator
    [02:11] <Shi_Hakousha> I am just trying to help out.
    [02:12] <Det_Serious> i assumed as such otherwise I would not be discussing this
    [02:12] <Shi_Hakousha> Oh that reminds me. I have some information about the stolen occult book.
    [02:12] <Shi_Hakousha> I will only say is this
    [02:12] <Det_Serious> go on
    [02:13] <Shi_Hakousha> The guy that stole it is very sneaky and is foreign.
    [02:13] <Shi_Hakousha> I think around the Asian countries
    [02:13] <Shi_Hakousha> That is all so far.
    [02:13] <Det_Serious> hmmm....not norwegian then
    [02:13] <Shi_Hakousha> nope.
    [02:13] <Det_Serious> okay thanks for that
    [02:13] <Shi_Hakousha> no problem. I do what I can.
    [02:14] <Det_Serious> right, whats your name then ?
    [02:14] <Shi_Hakousha> well

    [02:14] <Shi_Hakousha> or Flowing Stream
    [02:15] <Shi_Hakousha> But police and others gave me the nick name Shi Hakousha or Death Walker
    [02:15] <Shi_Hakousha> You probably might of heard of my "work"
    [02:15] <Det_Serious> hmmm...sounds a bit dramatic
    [02:16] <Shi_Hakousha> a month ago
    [02:16] <Shi_Hakousha> you heard of a drug gang that was found slashed?
    [02:16] <Det_Serious> yeah I heard of that
    [02:16] <Shi_Hakousha> 2 guys lived, but 3 died.
    [02:16] <Shi_Hakousha> I was he that did that.
    [02:17] <Det_Serious> hmmm
    [02:17] <Det_Serious> I&#39;ll take that under advisement
    [02:17] <Shi_Hakousha> which is why I got my name. I show no mercy to other villians.
    [02:17] * Shi_Hakousha smiles a tiny bit
    [02:17] * JinTatsenuko rapidly moves up behind Shi unnoticed by either of the cops while drawing two blades, and hits Shi over the head with the sides of the blades
    [02:17] <Det_Serious> i assume you know I am a police detective of the LAPD detectives bureau ?
    [02:18] <Shi_Hakousha> yes
    [02:21] * JinTatsenuko strikes at Shi, knocking him down unconscious
    [02:22] * JinTatsenuko grabs the detectives notebook from his coat and runs out of the room
    [02:22] * Det_Serious grabs his gun and draws a bead on the escaping git
    [02:24] <Det_Serious> halt or I shoot &#33;
    [02:24] * Det_Serious fires at the fleeing JinTatsenuko, the bullet moving unerringly towards his body
    [02:25] * JinTatsenuko feels the bullet hit his thigh but manages to swipe the gun away from the detectives hands
    [02:25] <Det_Serious> the bullet strikes and does 3 points of damage
    [02:26] <Det_Serious> the buggers got my notebook &#33;
    [02:28] * JinTatsenuko disappears from view
    [02:28] * Det_Serious is too late to stop the thief escaping
    [02:28] <Det_Serious> *****
    [02:28] * Det_Serious goes over to Shi_Hakousha
    [02:29] * Det_Serious uses his own first aid skills to determine quickly that Shi_Hakousha is unconscious
    [02:29] * Det_Serious calls for medical aid for Shi_Hakousha
    [02:30] * Det_Serious watches as Shi_Hakousha is carried to the emergency treatment area
    [02:31] * Det_Serious uses the opportunity to go through Shi_Hakoushas pockets and personal effects to find identification
    [02:31] * Det_Serious makes a mental note to get another notebook as soon as possible

    ACT 20 The Team meets up
    [02:32] * Det_Serious calls his office to give them a description of JinTatsenuko
    [02:33] <SarahWalters> Detective Serious i heard you had a run of bad luck
    [02:33] <Det_Serious> bad luck ? i think it was enemy action &#33;
    [02:34] <Det_Serious> some cop no-one has ever seen before gives me a serious warning
    [02:34] <Det_Serious> and then tries to shoot me
    [02:34] <Det_Serious> and when I shoot back he turns into the contents of an ashtray
    [02:35] <Det_Serious> and while I&#39;m here getting my ribs bandaged
    [02:35] <Jane-Bremer> so what do we do now
    [02:35] <Det_Serious> some fat Oriental comes in and starts shooting his mouth off about his deadly skills
    [02:36] <Det_Serious> and is promptly knocked out by a ninja with a norwegian accent
    [02:36] <Det_Serious> I might have been mistaken about the norwegian accent though
    [02:37] <SarahWalters> could have been a ruse i suppose
    [02:37] <Det_Serious> hmm maybe
    [02:37] <SarahWalters> well you may like to know that the occult books place was not a dead end
    [02:37] <Det_Serious> okay ...
    [02:38] <SarahWalters> we nearly got killed actually
    [02:38] <Jane-Bremer> by some mystic tenticle
    [02:38] <Det_Serious> sheesh
    [02:39] <Det_Serious> this is getting wierder and wierder
    [02:39] <SarahWalters> i have a feeling all of this is somehow connected
    [02:40] <Det_Serious> what do you think about the cop who turned into dust when I shot him ?
    [02:41] <Det_Serious> i havnt told anyone at work about that
    [02:41] <SarahWalters> that is new
    [02:41] <Det_Serious> they would turn me over to the shrink factory
    [02:41] <SarahWalters> well i always suspected that something controlled the police force to hide things like our mucus creature
    [02:42] <Jane-Bremer> did Mr.Dusty say some thing to you before he poofed?
    [02:43] <Det_Serious> he warned me to give up the case
    [02:43] <Det_Serious> and said I was the laughing stock of the deapartment for believing all this stuff
    [02:44] <SarahWalters> interesting... very interesting....
    [02:44] <Jane-Bremer> What do you make of all this Sarah?
    [02:45] <SarahWalters> for once i am truely stumped
    [02:45] <SarahWalters> anyone who would summon a creature to kill 5 people would not make the effort to stun a man
    [02:46] <Jane-Bremer> Is there any thing we for the star in the book store?
    [02:47] <Jane-Bremer> a...spell... perhaps?
    [02:48] <SarahWalters> well the star is the same as the one on the necronomicon
    [02:48] * JinTatsenuko (civilian clothes) leans against the doorframe
    [02:48] <JinTatsenuko> is this Mr. Tatsyedas room?
    [02:49] <Jane-Bremer> No, no its not
    [02:49] * SarahWalters smiles
    [02:49] * JinTatsenuko nods
    [02:49] <JinTatsenuko> pardon for the inconvenience
    [02:49] * JinTatsenuko leaves
    [02:49] <Jane-Bremer> Wait&#33;
    [02:50] <Jane-Bremer> damnit he got away
    [02:50] <Jane-Bremer> Did any one else recognize him?
    [02:51] <SarahWalters> oh yes
    [02:51] <Det_Serious> yeah that was the guy from the library yesterday morning
    [02:52] <SarahWalters> was it?
    [02:52] <Det_Serious> think so
    [02:52] <Jane-Bremer> thats what i thought
    [02:52] <SarahWalters> i knew i had seen him before
    [02:52] <SarahWalters> so anyway what happened to the guy who came to visit you?
    [02:53] <Det_Serious> incidentally, the Asian guy who visited me yesterday
    [02:53] <Det_Serious> he was telling me about the guy who stole the book
    [02:53] <Jane-Bremer> My book&#33;
    [02:53] <Det_Serious> he said that the thief was Asian and very sneaky
    [02:53] <SarahWalters> is he consious yet?
    [02:54] <Det_Serious> yeah
    [02:55] <SarahWalters> i am going to talk to him
    [02:55] <Det_Serious> but I have not spoken to him again yet
    [02:55] <SarahWalters> detective, with your tone its just as well
    [02:55] * SarahWalters grins
    [02:55] <Det_Serious> however, I found this in his pocket when he was knocked out
    [02:55] <Jane-Bremer> erm
    [02:56] * Det_Serious ignores the smart-mouthed limey broad
    [02:56] <Jane-Bremer> isn&#39;t that... illegal
    [02:56] * Det_Serious produces a library card for Jane-Bremers library
    [02:56] <Jane-Bremer> hmmmm
    [02:57] * Jane-Bremer reads the card
    [02:57] <Jane-Bremer> *gasp*
    [02:57] <Jane-Bremer> Mr. Nemy&#33;
    [02:58] <Det_Serious> dun dun dun ...

    ACT 21 Mr Nemy I presume

    [02:58] <SarahWalters> hello
    [02:58] <Shi_Hakousha> eh..
    [02:58] <Shi_Hakousha> oh hi
    [02:59] <Shi_Hakousha> godamnit, my head..
    [02:59] <SarahWalters> i heard what happened to you
    [02:59] <Shi_Hakousha> you did?
    [02:59] <Shi_Hakousha> *****
    [02:59] <Shi_Hakousha> so who are you?
    [02:59] <SarahWalters> yes Detective Serious and i are friends
    [02:59] <Shi_Hakousha> ok
    [02:59] <SarahWalters> i am Sarah, Sarah Walters
    [030] <Shi_Hakousha> I see
    [030] <Shi_Hakousha> Hmm
    [030] <Shi_Hakousha> I think I seen you before
    [030] <SarahWalters> well i do write
    [031] <Shi_Hakousha> Aren&#39;t you the person that wrote the occult books?
    [031] * Jane-Bremer leaves Det_Serious&#39;s room to get refreshmints
    [031] <SarahWalters> why yes i am
    [031] <Shi_Hakousha> ok
    [031] <Shi_Hakousha> I actually had a couple of questions to ask
    [032] <Shi_Hakousha> well mainly one
    [032] <SarahWalters> oh?
    [032] <Shi_Hakousha> but, you came in here probably to ask something also
    [033] <Shi_Hakousha> but I am curious in the books
    [033] <SarahWalters> which ones in paticular?
    [033] <Shi_Hakousha> The Necro books
    [034] <Shi_Hakousha> I am curious if someone can summon these creatures I been hearing about
    [034] <SarahWalters> the Necronomicon?
    [034] <Shi_Hakousha> yes that one
    [034] <Shi_Hakousha> my mind is still a bit fuzzy at the moment
    [034] <SarahWalters> well a copy was recently stolen from a local library
    [034] <Shi_Hakousha> yeah I know
    [035] <Shi_Hakousha> know so far what the guy sort of looks like
    [035] <SarahWalters> its certainly no petty spellbook, reading it will slowly turn the reader insane
    [035] <Shi_Hakousha> I see
    [036] <SarahWalters> the thing scares the hell out of me
    [036] <Shi_Hakousha> yes?
    [036] <SarahWalters> something mankind was never supposed to know
    [036] <Shi_Hakousha> hmm?

    [026] <SarahWalters> 2 spells are needed
    [026] <SarahWalters> one to reveal it
    [026] <SarahWalters> the other to destroy the seen abomination
    [027] <Det_Serious> okay ...
    [027] <SarahWalters> complicated...
    [027] <Det_Serious> so...err...what does that involve ?
    [028] <SarahWalters> i say the magic words and the thing goes away
    [029] <Det_Serious> right ....
    [029] * Det_Serious is not entirely convinced about this procedure
    [029] <Det_Serious> its a bit out of my league, you realise
    [029] <SarahWalters> i understand
    [02:10] <Det_Serious> you sure you&#39;ve got the words there and can say them ?
    [02:10] <SarahWalters> well i need protection while i cast the spell
    [02:10] <SarahWalters> for all of 28 seconds that thing will be free
    [02:10] <Det_Serious> what sort of protection /
    [02:10] <Det_Serious> what sort of protection ?
    [02:11] * Det_Serious stutters for the first time in years
    [02:11] <SarahWalters> but we need that gone so we can continue our search

    [02:15] <Det_Serious> may as well do it while its still light I guess
    [02:16] <Det_Serious> I should have handed in my service shotgun while I am on sickleave
    [02:16] <Det_Serious> but its in the trunk of the car

    [02:18] * Det_Serious retreives and loads the Remington pump action shotgun
    [02:19] * Det_Serious also brings a crowbar
    [02:19] <Det_Serious> right, whats the deal ?

    [02:20] <Jane-Bremer> hand me the crow bar det
    [02:21] <Det_Serious> there you go
    [02:21] * Det_Serious is somewhat incredulous but lifts his shotgun to his shoulder
    [02:21] <SarahWalters> ok everyone this thing is probably going to be scary so brace yourself
    [02:22] * SarahWalters starts to chant in an ancient form of latin that changes into an older and fark darker tongue
    [02:22] * Det_Serious braces himself
    [02:23] * SarahWalters gasps in horror at the creature revealed, masses of tenticles, insect like legs and a sigular great maw
    [02:23] <Det_Serious> eee
    [02:24] <Jane-Bremer> eeep
    [02:24] * Det_Serious was perhaps more prepared for this than he realised
    [02:24] * SarahWalters starts shaking at the sight of the monster
    [02:24] <SarahWalters> its....not....a.....squid
    [02:25] * Jane-Bremer gets over the initial shock and is prepared to react
    [02:25] <Det_Serious> shall I shoot it ??
    [02:25] <Jane-Bremer> hurry Sarah start your spell
    [02:26] * SarahWalters resumes to chant in the dark tongue as the beast starts to move forward
    [02:26] <Jane-Bremer> duh
    [02:26] * Det_Serious fires once at creatures head
    [02:27] * SarahWalters watches helplessly as the shot does little or no damage and continues coming
    [02:27] * Det_Serious racks another shell into the chamber and fires again
    [02:28] * Det_Serious is taken aback that the creature seems to shrug off another direct hit
    [02:28] * Jane-Bremer stands back with the crow bar at the ready
    [02:29] <Det_Serious> can&#39;t you speak a little faster there, lady ?
    [02:29] * Det_Serious racks another shell into the chamber and fires once again
    [02:29] * SarahWalters looks on in horror as the creature wraps a tentacle around the detective&#39;s arm
    [02:29] <Det_Serious> *****
    [02:29] * Jane-Bremer bashes a tentacle with her crowbar
    [02:30] * Shi_Hakousha charges in and hacks off the tentacle around the arm of Serious with his samurai sword
    [02:30] * Jane-Bremer watches the tentacles recoil
    [02:30] * Det_Serious tries to smash the tentacle with the butt of the shotgun
    [02:30] <Det_Serious> where did HE come from ?
    [02:31] <Jane-Bremer> does it matter?
    [02:31] <Det_Serious> nope &#33;
    [02:31] * Det_Serious racks another shell into the chamber and fires once again at the creature
    [02:31] * SarahWalters screams as 3 of the tentacles move towards her
    [02:31] * Jane-Bremer wacks the creature with her crowbar repeatedly
    [02:31] <Det_Serious> just cool it lady and say the spell
    [02:32] * SarahWalters resumes the chant, the spell clearly taking its toll on her body
    [02:32] * Jane-Bremer bashes the tentacles
    [02:32] * Shi_Hakousha charges at the creature dodging the tentacles and strikes the creature again
    [02:32] * Shi_Hakousha this times hits it with his sword and dagger
    [02:32] * Det_Serious reloads and blasts at the creature again
    [02:33] * SarahWalters is greatly weakened
    [02:33] <SarahWalters> need more power to finish the spell
    [02:33] <SarahWalters> this ***** is tough
    [02:33] <Det_Serious> can we help ?
    [02:33] * Det_Serious pauses from systematically blasting the creature
    [02:34] * Shi_Hakousha donates some power to Sarah
    [02:34] <SarahWalters> i... i... don&#39;t know
    [02:34] <Shi_Hakousha> HERE&#33;
    [02:34] * SarahWalters resumes chanting using up the last of her own power and the borrowed power
    [02:34] * SarahWalters watches the creature sink back into oblivion
    [02:35] * Det_Serious fires the last load of shot into the fading phantasm
    [02:35] <Det_Serious> *****...that was...different

    [02:39] <Det_Serious> i&#39;m not pleased about it
    [02:40] <Det_Serious> but Sarahs in trouble
    [02:40] <Det_Serious> and I&#39;m best at looking after her
    [02:40] <Det_Serious> and if we spend any time to take her to hospital
    [02:41] <Det_Serious> whatever we want might not be there when we get back
    [02:41] <Det_Serious> take the crowbar
    [02:41] <Jane-Bremer> alright
    [02:41] <Det_Serious> just do a quick search for now

    [02:44] * Jane-Bremer turns around to leave the room when she trips on some thing

    ACT 32 Investigation
    [02:11] <Det_Serious> okay Jane
    [02:11] <Jane-Bremer> yes?
    [02:11] <Det_Serious> I&#39;ve just taken a call from a colleague at the Detectives bureau
    [02:12] <Det_Serious> theyve got a trace on Lydecker
    [02:12] <Jane-Bremer> excelent
    [02:12] <Det_Serious> the Id tracks back to a law firm called Sampson and Sons
    [02:13] <Det_Serious> Sarahs gonna be flat on her back for a few days at least
    [02:13] <Det_Serious> I&#39;ve had a police guard placed on her
    [02:13] <Det_Serious> shes gonna have to take it very easy until she gets better
    [02:13] <Jane-Bremer> So what are we going to do untill then?
    [02:13] <Det_Serious> so, what do you reckon ?
    [02:14] <Det_Serious> are we gonna check out Sampson and Sons ?
    [02:14] <Det_Serious> or go back and have another look at the Website place ?
    [02:14] <Jane-Bremer> hmmm
    [02:14] <Det_Serious> or check out Shi ?
    [02:14] <Jane-Bremer> i think we so finish checking out Occult Books
    [02:15] <Jane-Bremer> there are problly some clues that i missed
    [02:15] <Det_Serious> yeah i think anything else there would have been moved out
    [02:15] <Jane-Bremer> why do you say that?
    [02:15] <Det_Serious> its been a few hours since we turned it over
    [02:16] <Jane-Bremer> its not like any one knows that we where there
    [02:16] <Det_Serious> Lydecker told me that he knew I was involved in a illegal entry to the place
    [02:16] <Jane-Bremer> i didn’t know that you talked to lydecker
    [02:16] <Det_Serious> yeah, when i took Sarah into the hospital
    [02:17] <Jane-Bremer> What&#33;?
    [02:17] <Det_Serious> he was hanging about outside
    [02:17] <Det_Serious> he said (consults new notebook)
    [02:17] <Det_Serious> he knows I was involved in the break-in
    [02:17] <Det_Serious> and not to worry about Sarah
    [02:18] <Jane-Bremer> did he say anything else?
    [02:18] <Det_Serious> which is why I put a armed police guard on her
    [02:19] <Det_Serious> hang on, i can hardly read my own writing here
    [02:20] <Det_Serious> ah nothing significant
    [02:21] <Det_Serious> so, shall we go pay them a visit ?
    [02:21] <Jane-Bremer> hmmmm
    [02:21] <Jane-Bremer> that seems like the best thing to do
    [02:21] <Det_Serious> just a house call, nothing heavy
    [02:21] <Det_Serious> okay, lets go
    [02:22] * Det_Serious leads Jane-Bremer to his powerful Mustang
    [02:22] * Det_Serious drives fast (but legally) to the location of Sampson and Sons
    [02:23] <Det_Serious> did you get any more out of that spell book by the way ?
    [02:23] <Det_Serious> the one we &#39;borrowed&#39; from Shi ?
    [02:24] <Jane-Bremer> well
    [02:31] <Jane-Bremer> a spell that can be used to heal some one, and other to stop one&#39;s heart

    [02:48] <Det_Serious> you mentioned &#39;dont be concerned about Sarah&#39;
    [02:49] <Det_Serious> well, when a stranger says something like that
    [02:49] <Lydecker> i simply meant that the young lady has quite a future ahead of her
    [02:49] <Det_Serious> the little alarm bells can sometimes go off in my head
    [02:49] <Det_Serious> right, I hope so, I do hope so
    [02:50] <Lydecker> that almost sounds like an acusation
    [02:50] <Lydecker> one i hope you have backing for
    [02:50] <Jane-Bremer> hmmm
    [02:50] <Jane-Bremer> why do you have a candle on the table
    [02:50] <Det_Serious> no, but I didnt get to be a Detective, without having a nasty suspicious nature
    [02:51] <Jane-Bremer> i mean your in a rather nice office
    [02:51] <Det_Serious> but no offence intended
    [02:51] <Lydecker> the candle is simple decoration
    [02:51] <Lydecker> as for the suspicious nature...
    [02:51] <Lydecker> well this is a law firm everything must be questioned for there to be... law
    [02:52] <Det_Serious> a typical lawyers response
    [02:52] * Lydecker smiles
    [02:53] <Det_Serious> and you are a lawyer then, I take it ?
    [02:53] <Lydecker> i am simply the son
    [02:54] * Jane-Bremer sense a....power.... coming from the candle on the desk
    [02:54] <Jane-Bremer> Mr. Lydecker
    [02:54] <Jane-Bremer> is there anything "special
    [02:54] <Jane-Bremer> "
    [02:54] <Jane-Bremer> about that candle?
    [02:54] <Lydecker> well it is rather hot if that is what you mean
    [02:55] * Det_Serious notices Jane-Bremers interest
    [02:55] <Jane-Bremer> is it from any where special?
    [02:55] <Lydecker> i would not advise touching it anyway

    [02:56] <Lydecker> ah will as you mention it
    [02:56] <Lydecker> it comes from
    [02:56] <Lydecker> India
    [02:56] <Jane-Bremer> hmmm
    [02:56] <Jane-Bremer> India you say
    [02:57] <Jane-Bremer> do you happen to know what part?
    [02:57] <Lydecker> it was purchaced by an associate
    [02:58] <Det_Serious> very nice too
    [02:58] <Jane-Bremer> may i ask who this associate is?
    [02:58] <Lydecker> A Mr Sanderson
    [02:59] <Jane-Bremer> does he work here?
    [02:59] <Lydecker> he used to
    [030] <Det_Serious> if he has access to cute candles like that, then I guess Jane will want to know where he is now
    [030] <Jane-Bremer> yes
    [030] <Det_Serious> shes a candle nut
    [030] <Lydecker> alas i am not sure where he is
    [030] <Lydecker> just vanished
    [031] <Lydecker> he is on a missing person list
    [031] <Det_Serious> hmm ... oh well
    [031] <Jane-Bremer> strange
    [031] * Jane-Bremer does sense alot of power coming from that candle
    [032] <Lydecker> i wish you people would look for him rather than...
    [032] <Lydecker> whatever the hell your doing
    [032] <Det_Serious> yes ?
    [032] <Jane-Bremer> could i buy that candle off of you?
    [033] <Lydecker> I would sooner not part with it
    [033] <Lydecker> it is the last thing Sanderson got me
    [033] <Jane-Bremer> before he... dissapered
    [034] <Det_Serious> anyway, good to meet you again Mr Lydecker
    [035] <Lydecker> the pleasure was all mine and by the way Miss Bremer
    [035] * Lydecker hands her the candle

    [036] * Det_Serious shakes Lydeckers hand
    [037] <Lydecker> well i miss Sanderson as much as the next person but i guess i have to move on
    [037] <Jane-Bremer> Ah

    [038] <Det_Serious> anyway, we&#39;ve got to take some grapes to someone
    [038] <Lydecker> besides i think he will turn up
    [038] * Lydecker gvies a knowing smile

    [03:14] * Lydecker laughs
    [03:14] <Lydecker> thats the spirit
    [03:15] <JinTatsenuko> i prefer working alone
    [03:15] <Lydecker> he is only there for backup
